India has a rich cultural heritage and valued traditions, especially that of philanthropy and service to others. Powered by this strong value of paying one's debt to society, the Hinduja Group's founder, Parmanand Deepchand Hinduja, earmarked a majority portion of their personal wealth for the benefit of the less-fortunate. 


Yet, even as he lived by these precepts, little must he have imagined that the culture of giving that he had initiated would spread beyond the shores of India. But today, the Hinduja Foundation has done exactly that, spreading its wings and growing into a truly multi-cultural charitable organization with roots in India, and branches in the United Kingdom and the United States of America. 


The Foundation has supported a number of initiatives to preserve the cultural heritage of the nation, particularly projects presenting and highlighting the everlasting progressive values of the Indian subcontinent. This includes projects that uphold social wellbeing and healthcare, like long-term social welfare measures, swift help in times of crises and undertaking rural development projects to enhance the livelihood of rural communities with planned initiatives, activities and village infrastructure development.



Transform the lives of the underprivileged in a self-sustaining manner.



Enable the beneficiaries to breakout of the cycle of poverty and draw them into a cycle of growth, development and empowerment, whilst retaining ecological balance in the process.


The focus of the Foundation will be to:

Promote and catalyse education, health, and welfare among the underprivileged.

Foster an environment which would bring the underprivileged into the mainstream.

Encourage, promote and preserve Indian Heritage & Culture
